EBU Group on Video Contribution over IP (VCIP)




There has been progress by SMPTE and VSF in standardisation of technology for IP based Video Contribution technologies. This concerns MXF as streaming wrapper (with compressed essence such as JPEG2000) as well as uncompressed video formats with the SMPTE 2022 standards suite. Industry is now starting implementation. However, before Members invest in equipment, an evaluation should be undertaken to test interoperability and performance in typical contribution applications. Best practices and guidelines should be provided to Members and Eurovision.
